San José – Caldera Closed For Five Hours Thursday Night
The heavy rains of Thursday afternoon once again forced the closure of the autopista San José – Caldera (ruta 27), for five hours from 4pm, re-opening shortly after 9pm.
The road concessionaire, Autopistas del Sol, said in a press statement that the closure was a “preventive measure”.
The director of the Policía de Tránsito, Cesar Quiros, told the press this morning that some material came loose during the closure, but did not give an explanation.
For its part, Autopistas said it closed the highway to prevent risks to drivers during the heavy rain of late afternoon Thursday.
